Happy Monday! We’ve enjoyed some beautiful spring weather recently. . .ideal for nesting season!
A pair of Eastern Bluebirds have been busy feathering their nest and gathering food to feed their brood.
Entertaining to watch as they fly to and fro and hunting up insects for hungry chicks.
Bluebirds are a gardener’s best friend with their voracious appetite for insects and help naturally rid the garden of pests.
They can produce between two and four broods during the spring and summer months.
I chalked up the door of the Potting Shed with a favorite quote and in celebration of ‘bird chirping’ weather . . .
“My favorite weather is bird chirping weather.”
I took my cue from the birds for a little nesting in the Potting Shed.
Birds of a feather have flocked together for a little tabletop fun. . .
Every bird is welcome in celebration of nesting and gardening season!
I feathered my nest twig by twig. . .
Bird napkin rings flew in to roost at the table, perched on nest and egg napkins. . .
Twig flatware. . .
Bird houses and eggs. . .
I love the sweet illustrations from The Country Diary of An Edwardian Lady and The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden. I picked them up from a used book seller several years ago.
Beautifully illustrated, Edith Holden’s “nature notes” from 1905, chronicle months of the calendar year with anecdotes, folklore, and poems, and are accompanied by her watercolor paintings of flowers, plants, birds, butterflies and landscape scenes of the British countryside.
The Bird Book by Neltje Blanchan flew home with me from a favorite antique mall several years ago.
